A first Sportsman’s Rendezvous was held this past Saturday at the Vandalia Area Fairgrounds, offering outdoor enthusiasts an opportunity to buy, sell, and trade with a variety of vendors and customers.
The event was geared towards those involved with deer, turkey, waterfowl, small game, and fishing.
The free admission event featured seminars by Jeff Foiles, of Foiles Championship Calls, and Joe Allen, of the Hunt Co. from the Pursuit Channel.
The pavilion area had several vendors with their goods on display as participants were eager to enjoy a time of fellowship with others who have a love for the outdoors.
The Vandalia Area Fair had their food stand open to those in attendance.
The event contacts were Bill Baumbach, Robert Brody Jr., and Randy Ehler.
Plans for a second annual event in 2016 are already in the works as this year’s Buy, Sell, and Trade Day was received well by attendees.
